Google Crop Circle Doodle : Sign Of Our Times !

After the UFO doodle linked to the search phrase 'Unexplained Phenomena' on the world's most visited web page, Google Search, Google is back with yet another transdimensional doodle of a Crop Circle with a saucer like craft hovering over and a Tractor harvesting crop creating the 'L' in Google !

Google has put up the special "crop circle" logo in some Pacific region countries. Google Japan, Google China, Google Taiwan, Google Korea and Google Australia all have the special UFO Crop Circle doodle up today, September 15th, which features a UFO hovering over a field with the Google logo spelled out.

Each country that Google used the special logo had it linked to a search for that country's word for "crop circle". In Japan, the link went to a search for "mystery circles".

On Twitter, Google shared this 51.327629, -0.5616088 about 3 hours ago ... on Google Maps give the co-ordinates of Woodham Road in the town of Woking which is curiously enough one of the first places where Martians landed in the novel that was called 'The War of Worlds' and was written by H.G Wells author of 'The Time Machine'. The town of Woking was also featured in 'The Meaning of Liff' written by Douglas Adams author of the famous 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy'.

Knowing Where One's Towel is ...

Somebody who can stay in control of virtually any situation is somebody who is said to know where his or her towel is. The logic behind this statement is presented in chapter 3 of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy :

" ....a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with."

Douglas Adams got the idea for this phrase when he went on holiday and found that his beach towel kept disappearing. On Towel Day, May 25th, fans commemorate Douglas Adams by carrying towels with them.
